Have you missed me?

I know, I know! I've been a terrible blogger. I love to check other people's blogs and I always note how often it's been since they've updated. I don't know why it's any of my business, but I do. I often would think, "There's no way I would let myself get behind in my blogging." Never say never!!!! (Also, I should take my own advice in what I tell my kids--"Be concerned about your own business") =) I haven't updated all summer long! It's now the 2nd week of school and I'm just now getting back into the swing of things. I have left everything to the imagination of my readers (all 1 or 2 of them?--maybe no readers!). Well, no longer I say to you! I'm back into my routine, slowly but surely tackling everyday obstacles that come my way.

First off, I had a wonderful, crazy, busy, travel-filled summer! I loved it, however, I'm glad to be back in my routine of school. I try to pack so much into my summer that I'm exhausted by the end of it. I did cross off a lot of stuff on my to do list. I'm still working on my office (used to be known as the office/craft room, but now it's just going to be an office) and guest room. In actuality, I didn't even really tackling those at all. I just let them sit all summer. I did get the guest bathroom done. It looks so good! I will be posting pictures soon (this week) so ya'll can see it. I worked on lesson plans, but we changed our class schedule, so I'm glad I didn't finish my lessons for the year because if I did, then I would have to change them all over again. Whew! So, the things I did cross off were great. I'll also be doing a list of books that I read over the summer. So many great ones!

I did a ton of traveling this summer. I went to Florida, Missouri, Fayetteville, El Dorado, and Dallas. Everytime I saw my new principal at the Primary school I was telling him that I just got back from one place and I'm leaving the next day for another place. Crazy! It was great times and I got to hang out with family and certain sweet man from El Dorado that I just can't help but be crazy about!

I also become an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Cosmestics! That's right! Mary Margaret and I are not only real sisters, but now we're Mary Kay Consultant sisters. We traveled down to Dallas, Texas for Seminar and boy, did we learn a lot! That's a whole other post just to talk about. Loved it! Love Mary Kay! You should check out my Mary Kay website: .

After my crazy summer, regular life seems kind of boring. =) I'm sure this year holds all sorts of exciting things to come my way. As for right now, I'm glad to be back into the routine!
